Always reliable


Can always count on this powered to last the whole nightwithout having to pack it ok on

Most Helpful Criticism

Okay Product


Not sure how I feel about this one. I have oily skin, find it good to touch up over liquid makeup / translucent powder during the day, but it doesn’t work so well for me as a powder foundation on its own.
  1. Great


    I love using this for touch ups especially during the hotter, humid months.
  2. Always reliable


    Can always count on this powered to last the whole nightwithout having to pack it ok on
  3. My go-to foundation


    I keep repurchasing this beauty. Great on my sensitive excema prone skin, it's got good coverage but not too heavy. Long wearing for a powder.
  4. Not the best!


    The product goes on nicely and looks great , but it doesn't wear well within hour or so my skin starts to look patchy, Yes i have used primer and tried a finishing spray. But the colour range is fab!
  5. No complaints


    This is a good powder. I often use this without any other foundations and still get good coverage. Feels good on skin, and lasts a while. Gives my makeup a nice matte finish as well
  6. Breaks me out, something shocking


    I have to update my review for this power as it broke me out horribly all over my face. I'm in my 30s and my skin has been quite good, especially since I've been selective with my skincare and makeup. I looked up the ingredients for this and it looked like a good powder that wouldn't cause any dramas but I was wrong! I usually get the odd one or two pimple occasionally but while I was using this (...

  7. Using this for years


    I’ve been using this for years it never fails me! Gorgeous shades and perfect amount of coverage. Looks great applied on top of liquid foundation for extra coverage & looks great on its own for a quick minimal makeup look. I think it’s reasonably priced for the quality
  8. So good!


    Loved this product - so light on the skin. I didn’t get my exact colour match correct but now I know for next time. Highly recommend!
  9. My go to powder


    This foundation powder is great. It has a great selection of colours which is perfect for my fair skin! It has really full coverage for a foundation and stays in place for ages. Great choice if you’re after a matte finish.
  10. full coverage


    This is the best full coverage powder foundation I have owned in my life. It gives a perfect finish and does not settle in fine lines. Great colour selection as well. I love to wear it on its own.
  11. Great


    Makes my skin look smooth but i need to apply a little bit
  12. full coverage


    love this on its own or on top of foundation
  13. Perfect powder foundation


    Super natural finish, I've been wearing this for years on days where I'm having a good skin day and don't want full coverage. Lasts forever too :)
  14. Always a good powder foundation


    Mac is a staple brand for a reason and this foundatiom is great. Full coverage and true to colour
  15. My favourite foundation


    I love this product. It’s subtle but super effective. Goes on easily, evens out my skin tone, and I can put it on and run if I need to. It’s been my only foundation for several years now.
  16. Amazing coverage


    This is a great matte powder that I use on top of foundation but you can also use it alone as foundation as it is super buildable. Mine has lasted forever as you don't need much!
  17. Good


    Nice foundation, very smooth and high coverage but feels a bit heavy on the skin as its a thick powder
  18. Great matte powder


    Like all Mac products, the packaging is great. The powder itself feels very finely milled. I use a brush for application and it gives me a nice matte finish which is great for my oily skin. Coverage is definitely buildable. If you're looking for a good matte powder foundation, I'd definitely recommend this one.
  19. Great for oily skin!


    I have super oily skin so this powder is perfect for lightly setting over my liquid foundation to stop the shine. When I'm going for a more natural foundation look I use the powder foundation alone. Nice natural finish when pressed onto the skin. Also the compact makes it really easy to use to touch up during the day.
  20. Amazing


    I have super oily skin and this foundation is a life saver, i put it on top of my liquid foundation and it helps it stay all day! even in the summer when its very hot.
  21. Great foundation


    I've used this foundation for years. It's easy to apply and lasts for the full day. It provides medium coverage. Not the best for dry skin as it looks flaky so make sure it is moisturized.
  22. I don't like powder foundations but I like this powder


    Generally I dont like powder foundations but I bought this just to give it a shot, I'm new to MAC but since everything I've tried so far has been quite outstanding, I thought maybe their powder foundation could be the one to change my mind about powder foundations, and it did, somewhat. The colour match was perfect, now I know what to order for other foundations. While I'm hesitant to use this as...

  23. Buildable coverage long lasting


    This foundation provides solid coverage that is buildable and quickly applied. I have moderate acne scaring with discolouration and some small parches of boxscaring on my cheeks - this is a powder that does well to cover this, and allows you to add that extra bit of coverage as needed on problematic areas. I wouldn't say it's as complete mask/blank canvas full coverage, but it all...

  24. Great coverage


    Such a soft texture and feels super lightweight while giving me amazing coverage. Doesn’t clog up my pores either!
  25. Perfect purse pal


    By far one of my top 5 make-up must haves. I don’t leave the house without it. Can be used on its owns or ontop of a liquid foundation for more coverage. Fits perfectly in a purse and even comes with a nice little sponge for any touch ups through out the day/night.
  26. Amazing coverage


    I love this powder and love how much coverage it gives. If you put too much on however it will tend to look a bit dry and powdery but I’m sure this can be fixed with a good setting spray.
  27. Fav Powder of all time


    This is my fav powder of all time! Great coverage, dont need anything else on the skin
  28. Best power foundation


    I use this with my Estee Lauder Double Wear when I want full coverage to hide acne scars - this M.A.C product is incredible with it's colour tones and ability to build your desired coverage. An airline lost my make up bag overseas on a flight changeover and all I had was this compact powder in my carry on - safe to say it provided all the coverage I needed on its own as it can also be dually used...

    I like wearing this on its own or on top of my foundation. It makes my skin look smooth and does not give a cakey look
  31. Beautiful powder foundation


    This is such a beautiful powder foundation. I love it on the skin, it looks absolutely beautiful!
  32. Can’t live without it


    I have combination skin. I use Bobbi Brown foundation and set with this MAC studio fix powder by patting over with a brush and using the sponge to apply over my t-zone - it gives a boost of extra coverage and minimises any unwanted shine or oily appearance. I find this lasts most of the day, I will often touch up in the afternoon in my T-zone for a freshen up and to get rid of any shine I have pro...

  33. The perfect cover


    This is my favourite powder foundation- I use my normal liquid foundation and then smooth this powder all over for flawless coverage, this lasts really well all day however if you have oily skin you may need to blot and repowder your Tzone by end of day. You can use a lighter shade for whole face and a slightly darker one to contour or for bronzer. Love it and gave even used it wet as a foundation...

  34. Amazing Foundation


    I have combination skin with an oily forehead. This foundation definitely gives me a flawless matte finish but typically starts getting oily in the afternoon unless I apply a touch up, but once I do apply a touch up, it's back to flawless looking skin (keep in mind I apply my makeup before 5am). I also suffer from sensitive skin (eczema and rosacea) and this covers my redness so well without any i...

  35. versatile product


    I have used this product for several years. I use it over foundation when doing my standard makeup. I use a medium brush in my base colour to cover any redness the foundation didn't cover. I then use the product in a slightly darker colour and apply it where you would usually place bronzer. I also use it like a loose powder with a large brush over moisturiser to give a matt finish if I want to...

  36. controls oil


    it is the best powder that can control oil on my face. i can wear it alone too over my moisturiser.
  37. Simple & beautiful finish


    This foundation is so easy to apply & build to the desired coverage. Such a natural finish & skin feels so soft.
  38. Great for setting liquid foundation


    Great for setting liquid foundation, the colour range is excellent.
  39. pretty nice old time favourite


    It was a big hit when I lived in UK in 2014. I still reach for it, old but gold. Gives a nice coverage but does not make you look flat.
  40. Great!


    Loooove MAC cosmetics. All their products are great and this powder is soo good. Lasts ages. I use it on its own on top of my sunscreen and I get a great coverage. Lasts all day.
  41. My GO to! Everytime


    I keep coming back to this bad boy!! I love this!! Been using for years over light foundation. ONLY issue is it can get a tad oily later in the day, and its not vegan or animal friendly :(.
  42. Long-term love!


    I've used this powder long-term and always come back to buy it. Offers a beautiful finish, covers imperfections and lasts throughout the day!
  43. Beautiful quality


    I really like this Mac powder I have been using it for a while now and am still so happy with it. It applies to my face so easily and flawlessly, I find that I don’t have to use too much and I get good coverage. It also doesn’t feel heavy or cakey on my skin. Would definitely repurchase!
  44. Amazing cover


    This powder is the best and is very covering. If I want a light makeup look then I will use a concealer and then this powder and if I want a full makeup look then I will use this over the top of foundation. It is great at covering blemishes and I love that it is available is so many colours!
  45. amazing


    I love this powder. Its super simple, smooth, great coverage while being breathable
  46. Great Coverage


    This is a great powder. I used to use this every day on top of foundation, but have since moved on to a translucent powder as I like a natural look. I do go to this if I want more coverage for a night out or want to control the shine. I would say I have normal/combination skin, and it applies nicely and doesn't leave me feeling cakey.
  47. Best powder foundation out there!


    I have super oily skin and although I love bare minerals it would always turn greasy. I bought this after reading reviews online and it's AMAZING! keeps my face matte all day, applies in a few minutes and feels light on the face. doesn't have that cakey powder look.
    I'm really happy about this purchase!
  48. Goes on well


    Goes on well, and looks great...for the first hour. After that it begins to seperate on your skin. Pass.
  49. Lasts!


    Lasts ages. I use it on its own on top of sunscreen, gives a nice bit of coverage. Good quality
  50. Amazing!


    I have combination skin and it is great for my oily areas, doesn't cake or dry up my more normal areas. Great coverage with or without foundation and great range of shades.
    I have used this product for years and love it.
  51. Fav powder


    Definitely a great powder foundation and one that last ages. Blends well with all my foundation brands and always takes the shine away without the powdery look. Love
  52. Impressive product and prices not unreasonable.

    Rachael McLean

    Studio Fix remains one of the top pressed-powder foundations available, despite several impressive entries from other companies. It has an exceptionally silky, talc-based texture that applies and blends like a dream. As usual, wet or dry application is possible, but using this wet poses the risk of streaking. Dry application provides light to medium-full coverage. If you prefer this type of founda...

  53. Great


    I love using this on my skin when I am running late in the morning as it is very easy to apply and looks amazing on my skin
  54. lovely


    great for mornings when I need to rush to work, does a great job so the price is so worth it. I love it !
  55. love this stuff


    Ive used a lot of pressed powder foundations. But for some reason I always come back to the Mac studio fix powder. I usually use it as foundation on its own for my daily makeup and it covers all that imperfections that I don't want. It last met all day long. And also the product itself goes on to last for a while. Worth the money.
  56. I love it

    Chele Pagno

    This product makes your skin super matte and also soft, it doesnt make your face cakey or anything like that.
    It is definitely worth the money. I love it
  57. Perfect pocket make up!


    This MAC compact foundation is the perfect size to fit into your handbag, pouch or travel cosmetics case! It comes with a sponge applicator, however I prefer to use it with a brush. It looks flawless on your face as it appears as a powder and stays on all day. Go to foundation for everyday wear!
  58. Very good powder foundation


    This is one of the best pressed powder foundations I've tried in terms of quality. I use it on its own as a foundation on days when I don't want to do a full face of makeup, and it covers imperfections and pores beautifully for a natural finish. Great extensive shade range which matches up with their liquid foundations.
  59. best powder


    covers flawlessly and doesn't feel too heavy on your skin
  60. Great powder


    I have used this product for years and love. I have combination/oily skin and it is great for my tzone/oily areas, but doesn't cake or dry up my more normal areas. Great coverage with or without foundation and great range of shades.
  61. Amazing - use it every day and highly recommend


    This is amazing over the top of the matching foundation, or even just on its own. It covers all sorts of blemishes and pigmentation, and is heat and sweat proof, and is a great every day staple. I usually just brush on over my skincare products, and then add a bit of bronzer, and it gives you a perfect complexion.
  62. Hit & miss


    Whilst it applies nicely, I found that it doesn't always sit great on the my skin.
  63. Amazing


    I'm super lazy and hate applying foundation, and this is so easy to use while giving a similar effect to foundation or BB cream! I love how it controls oil and keeps me matte all day. Had mine for over a year and still haven't run out.
  64. Best powder!


    I used the Studio Fix liquid foundation without this powder for years. I finally purchased the powder to go on top and OMG it's amazing!! Sets my foundation beautifully, and adds that little bit of extra coverage. It also stops the liquid foundation from going shiny throughout the day. I find this powder also looks really nice when used on its own if you want a light-medium coverage. Price is fant...

    If you're looking for a fixing powder with good coverage that doesn't cost a fortune, this is it.
    Yes, there are better (more expensive) options but this one is pretty good for the price.
    Coverage can be quite thick and colour match is quite difficult because of the undertones but it really isn't terrible.

  67. Holy grail powder


    Mac Studio Fix powder will always be my number one favourite powder foundation. I use a dense flat top brush to pat it over liquid foundation for extra coverage and it never looks cakey. Nothing beats it!
  68. Used this for years!


    I have used this for years and years and I will never switch as I have never found another product that matches the staying power and coverage like this gem does.
  69. Best all day sweat proof powder - full coverage


    I have used this for years either just on its own or over foundation - it lasts all day even in a hot climate. Sometimes I just brush over my face and it covers redness and blemishes so well. It really is the best all day wear you can get, from all day at work, to the gym or going out, it won't disappoint.
  70. Love


    Smooth and silky application and great colour.
  71. Fantastic


    I love this powder so much. It’s so great for over the top of my face and body foundation. I really like it and think it’s beautiful.
  72. Amazing all day coverage.


    I love this powder foundation! It is quite lightweight but the more you apply the more coverage you get. It blends perfectly and makes my skin look flawless. I also love how matte it makes my skin look. I apply it over my liquid foundation when I would like a little more coverage. It lasts all day!
  73. All time favourite


    All time favorite for light coverage. I dont wear much make up but this just sits on my skin and covers what I need to.
  74. Perfect lightweight, everyday coverage


    I'm pretty low maintenance when it comes to makeup - 5 minute morning routine at the best of times. I don't like feeling caked on with makeup and have always gone for powders for this reason. Studio fix ticks all the boxes for me!
  75. Love this


    My go to! i use it alone for a lighter coverage or over foundation for extra coverage. its easier to use and i love that you can build it up depending on the coverage you want.
  76. LOVE THIS! the holy grail of coverage powder


    This powder can literally make any foundation look full coverage !
    This powder lasts forever and looks so beautiful on the skin!
    Has a great colour range which have many different under tones and suits most skin types!
  77. Full coverage!


    I purchased this for those day’s where I can’t be bothered with a full face of makeup but want to quickly cover my pigmentation and post acne marks. This completely covers my skin issues when used alone and can be used with the studio fix liquid for super coverage. Doesn’t break me out or look cakey and ageing. Brilliant!
  78. Best Pressed Powder!


    This is my go to pressed powder! It provides extra coverage, it doesn't look cakey, very natural finish. I have tried so many powders and I always keep coming back to this one! I love that the price tag is affordable (compared to competitors) and is so easy to use!
  79. Great for on the go


    I am obsessed with this product for days when i am running late and just need to clean up my appearance. I can apply this on my face in barely a minute and it does not look cakey and gives me enough coverage to even out my skin tone and gives my skin colour. I also use this to set liquid foundation on days I'm going for a full coverage look and it is so versatile in is application and i love it. H...

  80. Long lasting powder and good value


    This powder has good coverage and lasts, I keep it in my purse for touch ups on the go over top of liquid foundation. Also love that it has 15 grams of product, more than most other brands.
  81. Great setting powder


    This powder is great to use to set your foundation or for some extra coverage and reduces shine
  82. Nice colour


    Goes on easy and nice colour
  83. Fantastic!


    Great powder, always has been always will! I use this over my base more so to set it or add a bit extra coverage if I've just used a BB or CC cream, but it definitely is a fuller coverage powder if you want to use it that way. Would 100% recommend, very long lasting and amazing shade range too.
  84. My holy grail powder


    Every time I have ever tried a new powder, I have ended up chucking it and going back to the Studio Fix Plus. Even when used over a more affordable drug store liquid foundation, I find it sticks well, hides my discolouration and fine lines and creates a great texture for my skin.
  85. For all the moments


    I use my powder with or without foundation! For lighter skin in everyday use only use it. It has great coverage! Or use after base to mattify.
  86. Very good!


    I use this as a setting powder over foundation and it looks great and lasts forever
  87. best thing ever


    such good packaging, they give you free little samples too. I have always been using this powder. it's great to buy it online as it takes few days to arrive it's very quick and convenient
  88. Natures best friend!


    I use this product daily of my studio fix foundation works really well and hold my makeup all day. It is also great for lighter coverage on its own and can easily build up for more coverage
  89. Best powder!


    Have been using this for years !
    Great coverage on its own or over foundation!
  90. Best Powder


    I have used this powder for years, it is affordable and lasts months. The finish a smooth and does not look caked on. The colour matches my skin perfectly.
  91. Silky


    Makes my skin look really silky and even! Would definitely recommend as it doesn't clump in certain areas or sink into my skin. It is also slightly matifying which is perfect for long days and it blurs imperfections
  92. Airbrushed finish


    Love love love this! I use it lightly on top of foundation and it gives the perfect airbrushed finish. It’s not cakey at all and with so many options for colour, you are bound to find one that is perfect for you! Would definitely recommend!
  93. Amazing


    I've been going back to this powder for years now, never fails to set my makeup in place and give an amazing finish and feel to my dry-combo skin! Although I would recommend maybe going a shade lighter than usual as I think it oxidizes the tiniest bit throughout the day, nothing too hectic x
  94. easy to apply


    Very easy to apply and great because you can get a full coverage in a powder! always keep it in my purse for emergencies
  95. great coverage but oxidizes...


    This powder looks amazing initially on my skin, but by the end of the day, oxidizes to an odd orange hue. However, my skin is very oily.
    Still has one of the best colour ranges of any powder available IMO
  96. Best powder ever


    I love this powder. I love the texture and the finish is absolutely perfect no need to retouch.
  97. Great mineral fix


    Love this foundation when I just need a light coverage. Great for after microdermabrasion sessions when you are only allowed mineral makeup. Colour match is spot on
  98. fabulous


    A favourite in our house, forever looking for it as it goes missing in my 13 year olds bedroom. We both love it, Very matte finish, looks great all day.
  99. Works as a setting powder


    It actually works well as a setting power. Some of my foundation's coverage is on the lighter side so when I use these foundations, I layer this on top to give some extra coverage.
  100. On the fence about this one...


    I purchased this a while ago from a Mac store. I also purchased studio fix fluid which I like but when I apply this powder over the top I find it just looks too heavy. Even by just lightly dusting it over my face to set my makeup. And I find it clings to my dry patches even when I use a primer etc. I do have to say tho it gives AMAZING coverage and would be so perfect for someone with quite oily s...
